Tokaj

Mád

The legend about the settlements of the Hungarians has it, that chief Árpád came to Hegyalja, rested on the highest slope and looking around said: “Ma ád Isten szerencsét e tályon”, which translates as “Today, God gives us luck on this land.” His words captured what he saw, and the geographic names of the area preserved his words in their name:

  • Ma ád” means – gives today, became Maád, or Mád as it is called today.
  • Isten” means – God, appears in the name of the Isten hill, where Árpád rested.
  • szerencsét” means – luck, in the name of the village Szerencs.
  • tályon” means – on this land, appears in the name of Tállya.

Mád has always been a significant village of the Tokaj terroir. Noble families bought vineyards around Mád, and built or bought cellars in the village.

We bought the first vineyard in 2005. The lands are located in Tállya, Tarcal, and on the most excellent Padi-hill slope of Rátka close to Mád. We have been tending to our lands ever since and today we cultivate 13 acres of vineyards in and around Mád (Rátka, Tállya, Tarcal, Tokaj).

We also set up our headquarters in a wine house in Mád, which was originally built in the 1700s and the property of the Szirmay family. According to the data in the archives, the last owner was Earl Ottó Szirmay. Unfortunately, time and the lack of proper care took a heavy toll on the building, which made it necessary to renovate the building. The works have been concluded recently including buying, renovating, and re-vaulting more cellars around the wine house.
